‘Because you’re worth it’
What if I told you that you could achieve the same results as big-brand products by using coconut oil?
Coconut oil is an excellent remedy for dry skin and tired hair. It works to ensure your skin remains moisturised and your hair retains its shiny quality.
It can be readily used as a natural direct replacement for your common high street brands and works to help your body without flooding it with any additional chemicals in the process.
You can’t beat a healthy heart
You most certainly cannot!
This is why coconut oil is a great substitute to use instead of vegetable oils when cooking.
Coconut oil is made up of about 50% Lauric Acid which works to actively prevent various heart problems like high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
The Lauric Acid has a specific chemical structure that allows your body to absorb them whole, making them more easily digestible. Your body then processes them as it would carbohydrates, so they can be used as a source of direct energy.
Coconut oil each day to keep the doctor away
It strengthens the immune system because it contains constituent compounds which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
More specifically, your body converts Lauric Acid into Monolaurin, which research has supported as an effective way to deal with viruses and bacteria.
This can be directly applied by means of ingestion and or by applying to the externally infected area, as it works to provide a chemical layer protecting against dust, air, fungi, bacteria and viruses.
Here are some additional benefits
- Useful for weight loss, by increasing the body’s metabolic rate.
- Helps controlling blood sugar, and improves the secretion of insulin. It also promotes the effective utilization of blood glucose, thereby preventing and treating diabetes.
- It facilitates absorption of calcium by the body, and thus helps in developing strong teeth.
- Improves the ability of our body to absorb important minerals. These include calcium and magnesium, which are necessary for the development of bones.
If the taste of coconut oil isn’t really for you, that’s ok – why not try to incorporate it into different recipes so that its taste isn’t so prevalent? Whatever you do with it though, I would only recommend using organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil.
